Have a Krafty Christmas! by Teresa Morgan

I’m back again with another set of cute stamps from Personal Impressions Sweet Dixie Collection, designed by Lindsay Mason. These ‘Christmas Characters’ have a sweet doodled style to them, so I kept my designs simple and made a set of cards and tags using kraft card.

I stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

I added some accents of red with Liquid Pearls, and used some festive ribbon and pompom trim to finish.

Christmas Tweets by Teresa Morgan

I am really enjoying making Christmas cards with these fabulous stamp sets from Personal Impressions Sweet Dixie Collection. Lindsay Mason’s designs are a lovely mix of modern and traditional, so there is something for everyone! Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a robin, and this one is a beauty.

I coloured the robin and holly with Copics and Promarkers, adding some festive sparkle with Ice Stickles in Stardust. He is mounted onto the die cut circle with 3d foam for dimension.

I used the little music notes to create my background, stamping with Versamark ink and embossing with silver embossing powder. The sentiment is stamped in black and matted onto silver card.

A clean and quite simple design that allows the robin to be the star of the card!

A CHRISTMAS HELLO by Teresa Morgan

I know that it is only August but many crafters are already looking ahead to Christmas, trying to get a start on the busiest card making celebration of the year.

I have used some beautiful stamps from Personal Impressions Sweet Dixie Range, designed by Lindsay Mason. I love to mix and match, and found that the elements in these sets work well with each other.

I love this cute girl stamp – she comes with three different ‘face’ stamps so you can give her a different look. When I first got her, I thought that she would be perfect for paper piecing (stamping onto different patterned papers and fussy cutting). I used patterned paper for her clothes and boots, adding mini buttons to her coat. Her face and hair are coloured with Copics.

I stamped the fairy door and coloured with Promarkers, adding some Stickles for sparkling snow. The snowflakes are embossed with white embossing powder, then Distress Inks (Peacock Blue, Blueprint Sketch) are blended over for the sky.

The little cat and snow angel are attached with 3d foam. I drew in some tiny paw prints with a fine liner pen.

A little more Stickles on the ground and wings finished the card.
